Totally agree, I live in Europe and it does not work otherwise

Reader comment on item: Casey, Santorum and Jerusalem

Submitted by Ignacio (Spain), Jun 21, 2006 at 15:17

I totally agree with this view. I can see (cause I live it) that European foreign policy does not exist, it is clearly the OIC which dictates European policy, but even with this, Europe has no problems at all in supporting Arab petro-dictatorships.

Even if this or any other measure is seen as "pro-Israel" by somebody, does it matter? Why these "oh-do-not-hurt-Muslim-sensitiveness" mongers do not say a word when Mr. Solana rushes to placate Arab states by the next thing they feel like claiming about?

Moving any embassy to Jerusalem sends a clear signal: no matter how much you prop fuel prices up, no matter how many human bombs you send us, no matter how many stories you tell us about "your inalienable rights" to burn embassies, kill film directors or expell Dutch feminists: we stick to our values.
